AMI-CON now stock Crayamid 140!

AMI-CON PART NUMBER:  RESPASTMISA00000477

AMI-CON is proud to announce they have become a distributor of Crayamid 140.  This product has been extremely difficult to come by in the UK, but the great news is that AMI-CON has become a leading supplier.

PRODUCT INFORMATION:

CRAYAMID 140 is a medium viscosity liquid amino polyamide resin used in conjunction with epoxy resins to produce high build coatings and structural & laminating adhesives. It is used where the prime requirements are fast cure and flexibility. It is compatible with many synthetic resins, varnishes, oils and other media.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE :

The selection of a particular grade of epoxy will depend upon the end use of the product.  It is recommended that for high build coating it is always recommended to use low molecular weight Epoxy. In solvent based coatings medium molecular weight and unmodified liquid epoxy resins may be used, while for adhesive applications either the unmodified or modified liquid epoxy resins are recommended.   While the mixing ratio using CRAYAMID polyamides is not critical, optimum performance of the coating is achieved by stoichiometric mixing of the epoxy resin and CRAYAMID 140.

The German car was also built with a new prepreg of SAATI, developed with the new high-temperature structural epoxy ER450 with yarns of high strength carbon.

The research and development of Saati led the race with another resin system, after the prepreg resin-based system ET445 which had already been used in the last year car and has  been repeated again in 2012.

Two innovative  high-performance systems, both solvent-free as required by the automotive industry, with the sales and technical service support that has made the company famous in the market. Where outstanding  performance, speed and service are required..... Saati is there!

ER450: structural system for high temperature service. Characterized by cycles of polymerization by very low temperatures and flexible to the needs of each customer and application

ET445: A system for general purpose, medium temperature with excellent mechanical properties and unsurpassed aesthetic qualities. The only real "free white spots" available in the market

The technical team of commercial Saati is also on hand to talk about the new innovative tooling system ES 160 and the patented solution "Apreg" for surfaces of class A.
